Dockered kaiwa image

Kaiwa is a modern web based client for XMPP, forked from the original O-Talk project and rebranded. I’ve created a docker image from the fork at https://github.com/ForNeVeR/Kaiwa which is used at jabber.ru amongst others. The docker image can be found at https://hub.docker.com/r/sstrigler/kaiwa/. I’ve also created a docker image of the node-xmpp-bosh component that can easily […]

jwchat.org Updates

I have been working a lot on my XMPP service at jwchat.org recently. The idea was to bring you more security, privacy and modern features. In detail what has changed: Use letsencrypt to automatically create and renew SSL certificates for all domains hosted (jwchat.org, x-berg.de and blogsport.eu currently). Updated DB-Schema to be able to support […]

Migrate ejabberd DB schema (mysql) from 2.1.x

Hiya! Long time no see. So I was upgrading my beloved ejabberd a while back and when I looked closer I found that most of the new functionality just wouldn’t work.

work in progress…

Some status update: Moving jwchat.org’s services from one host to another appears to be a lot more time intense as I first thought. Currently I’m about to import roster data to the new mysql db which seems to take hours. Finally I managed to get the websites back in partial but there’s still a lot […]

pyicq in da house

Today I replaced the good ol’ JIT Jabber ICQ Transport with PyICQ-t. JIT seems to fail for recent updates to the ICQ protocol and there seems to be no updates to fix the issues. So I decided to give PyICQ another try. Let’s hope it doesn’t eat up too much of our beloved resources (RAM, […]
